Wild Sweets is back with their holiday collection to make everyone’s Christmas a little more merry and delicious. This includes sculptures, logs, and chocolate sets.
I was invited back to check out the items that they are offering.
Crispy Chocolate Cherry Orange ‘Tea Cake’
This was one of my favourite items. This is their twist on the classic Christmas fruit cake. The cake is placed over a crunchy buttery ‘sablé’ cookie topped with a hazelnut chocolate praline cream with crispy crepe flakes. It is so good. I will take this over any fruit cake any day.
Venezuela Ocumare Chocolate ‘Bûche de Noël’
Each layer of this cake provides a different texture, including a delicately soft jelly coating, cloud-like mousse, unctuous cream, rich ganache and crispy/crunchy base. This one one of my top favourites too. It’ll be great to bring this to a holiday party and it’s unique compared to other cakes out there. I love the mousse and how rich that ganache is.
Holiday cocoArt Sculpture
They have 5 different holiday sculptures.
Crispy Cherry Cake Ganache Collection
Each collection features an assortment of 4 chocolate bouchées with the following flavours:
- William Pear & Chestnut Cream Caramel Ganache
- Lychee Rose & Raspberry Caramel Ganache
- Cassis Blackberry & Elderberry Ganache
- Mandarin & Orange Zest Caramel Ganache
These reminded me of little moon cakes. It was like a hybrid between a fruit cake, chocolate and a moon cake.
2016 Vintage Canadian Icewine Collection
ThisCollection includes the following ganache flavours:
- Cabernet Franc Icewine & Strawberry Apple Ganache
- Riesling Icewine & Peach Orange Ganache
- Vidal Icewine & Pineapple Passion fruit Ganache
- Gewürztraminer Icewine & Lychee Rose Ganache
A good gift for those ice wine lovers out there and these taste pretty good.
2016 Vintage ‘Ganache Classique Nougatine’
The 2016 Vintage ‘Ganache Classique’ Limited Edition Collection includes the following origins and percentages:
- 70% Venezuela Ocumare
- 70% Venezuela Canaobo
- 70% Peru Oro Verde
- 64% Mexico Chiapas
Each ganache filling is topped with a piece of salted butter cocoa nibs nougatine before being enrobed in dark chocolate. I love the differing textures.
Overall, my favourite part of the holiday collection are the cakes. A nice twist to the classic items.
